Chad Ryan Chinese Medicine Consultations

Chinese medicine can be suitable for use alongside other appropriate interventions for most types of conditions you can think of. Employing diagnosis based on Chinese medicine philosophy, consultations will consist of an observation of, and discussion with, the client; and a treatment drawing on tools of the trade that are applicable to the task at hand, which with the client's consent, may include acupuncture needles, herbal medicine, moxibustion heat therapy, scraping, cupping, acupressure and remedial massage, lifestyle or dietary advice and exercise therapy.
